AMAZED darts fans believe that once 16-year-old darts semi-finalist Luke Littler can drink ten pints his game will take a quantum leap forward.
The teenager’s rapid ascent through the ranks is only a shadow of the achievements expected once he is legally able to consume the official drink of the sport in two years.
Fan Oliver O’Connor said: “If he’s playing darts like that without… my God. The mind boggles on what he’ll do on a bellyful of the good stuff.
“Most people can’t even recognise darts as a sport until they’re at least six pints to the good, and I’m talking about the hardcore at Ally Pally. So this kid is clearly blessed, perhaps with a natural blood alcohol level of 0.12.
“Once he reaches drinking age he’ll go up to a whole other level. Get ten pints inside him and every dart will be laser-guided. His opponents won’t stand a chance no matter how much they drink.
“We could be looking at an all-timer here. I can’t wait to see it. Shame he’s so youthful and fresh-faced that he could never get served underage.”
